The below research participant solicitation is being provided for informational purposes only. The National Federation of the Blind has no involvement in this research, but we believe that it may contribute to our research mission.
Invitation to Participate in Research on Employment Experiences of BVI Individuals
Are you legally blind and age 18 or older? Are you comfortable verbalizing your thoughts in English? Have you at some point in the last five years been employed? If your response is yes to all these questions, you can earn a $25 VISA gift card for participating in a research study.
A research team comprising of blind and sighted scholars at the Envision Research Institute is investigating the experiences of blind and visually impaired individuals at different stages of the employment cycle as these relate to Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The goal is to understand hiring and retention policies that are effective for including blind and visually impaired people in the workforce.
Volunteers selected as study participants will be instructed to complete a questionnaire. The complete study might take about 45 minutes. A follow-up interview may be necessary to clarify some responses on the questionnaire. Upon completion of the study, the participant will receive a $25 gift card as a token of appreciation.
If you are interested in participating, or have a question about the study, please contact Marco Tarantino (email: marco.tarantino at envisionus.com; phone: 316-440-1524). Please reference project title: "Experiences of Blind and Low Vision Individuals at Different Stages of the Employment Cycle as These Relate to Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Regulations Implemented in 2014" (IRB#: 4424) in the subject line of the email.
